against john mccain, in the, you know, 2008 election and, i think that that is what hurt her in the senate, as much that's fact she used the talking points on benghazi. >> rick: fair enough. does john kerry sail through confirmation? >> sail through like a missile. the funny part -- >> rick: like a missile, you say? >> like a very fast missile. >> rick: a discussion about our top diplomat... i know what you mean. >> the rule used to be, a senator was the easiest person to confirm, because there's all kinds of privilege and all of that. but what we are seeing with chuck hagel, a republican, whose name has been bandied about for secretary of defense, he's getting shot at and, we see the words, getting rice -- because of comments he made about israel and other areas and being a senator is no longer the guarantee it once was but in kerry's case he's well liked. john mccain, who was active against susan rice is already calling him more secretary. i think he's going to be the easiest confirmation. it is just a massachusetts problem that remains. >> rick: no shortage of hot spots on the world sta
margin in 1996, john kerry, john mccain @ -- none of them was in negative territory. all of them few them more favorably than unfavorably. this was something we have not seen before. part of that reflects the greater polarization of american politics right now. it used to be the case that a lot of voters from the other side would still like the other guy. even in 2008, a lot of democrats like john mccain, thought he was an ok guy. now i think we're in a time of greater partisanship and some respect so that his ratings were much lower on long obama supporters and democrats in general than is typical for that kind of cross party opposition. the bigger issue was among independent voters, among the middle of the electorate. you would suggest an unappealing candidate. it was not just that they were not excited about him, they actively did not like him. most of the time when people have to cook a coin, they will say using ok. that was a big problem for him. some people would say it took him longer to tackle the issue over the summer than was ideal. that may have been a reflection of the obama c
, but not as far left as the first joist. lou: interesting, john mccain and others came out with really unreserved support for senator kerry. let's turn, if we may, to the failure in benghazi. and this report looks to me, i no there are varying views on this. and other whitewash, it seems. >> and the misses the point. we know what happened before and during periodsgrew up some allies, cover-ups. to me with the important thing is, what happened afterwards, which is nothing. then never hunt down, retaliated, responded. look at what happened to the original september 11th. 1998, attacks on u.s. embassies in east africa and in 2000 attack on the u.s.s. cole, we did not repond. we beefed up security at the embassy, change the rules of engagement. a the leader before it september 11th at a record of videos saying american as i respond. let's go kill more americans. by failing to respond we know who did this attack. we know where the training camps are. by failing to respond we have given them a green light davis again. lou: in the hope that we will learn the truth of what haened? that there will be anyo
so embattled from both sides? >> well, yes, sort of. yourn, you know that john mccain hates the guy. you know, he -- and he didn't create a lot of friends toward the end of his time and throughout most of his time as a senator. because he didn't really tow the party line on policy. he broke with republicans on the iraq war. and so he oftentimes would give democrats a way of saying what they were doing was bipartisan and then had the sheen of the veblt of a guy like hagel so it's this guy that's been a thorn in their side the whole time. now here he is he might be elevated to secretary of defense. and you could see that's going to bother the same types of people that seem to be bothered by every other person that's floated by obama. and that's mccain and graham and those fellas. >> but we've heard about this mccain not liking or hating chuck hagel. what's that about? what's their history? from one maverick to another. >> exactly. there's only so much room in the senate for mavericks. you know? and mccain is the maverick. there's also only so much room for war heroes. so there's that
. yesterday, a long time colleague of his, senator john mccain congratulated him on his nomination and will consider that nomination, but he did not promise to support it. >> my view on whether secretary kerry should be-- or senator kerry should be secretary will not be based on differents of views. we had difference of views going back to 1991 when he said desert storm would fail. but what it will be based on is my view of his ability to carry out his responsibilities. >> reporter: we didn't hear from kerry yesterday. we also didn't hear from current secretary of state hillary clinton still recovering from the same concussion that kept her from testifying before congress about the deadly raid on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. it's unclear if her expected testimony down the road will come before or after kerry's confirmation hearings. kelly. >> kelly: a lot of people looking forward to see what will transpire with that testimony before congress. peter doocy, thank you. >> jamie: well, kelly, an update now on president obama and his family, their holiday plans. they're arri
folks at the highest levels thought they were going to win. does the which was different from john mccain, where they knew they were going to lose. it does go certainly. they believe their internal polling, which had a different type of elector them what showed up, -- different type of electorate them what showed up -- than what showed up. the romney campaign began a process. they had their tough-guy literally make the calls out to stop the process of bringing mitt romney down to the podium to concede the presidency. they stopped the process because they thought that all i was too close to call, and for over an hour, we report in the book, history was on pause. they hit the pause button, and it was not until after midnight that mitt romney wanted to concede. they wanted to make sure the votes were counted and do what they thought was the right, a prudent thing. we have this remarkable scene, where the romney campaign is talking to rob portman on speaker phone, and they are talking about the possibility of having paul ryan going to the podium and sending anybody home until the next
with their families. >> john mccain congratulated kerry on his nomination and the republican from arizona says he will consider him as secretary of state but did not promise his support. >> my view on whether senator kerry should be secretary of state will not be based on difference of view. we had differences of view going back to 1991 when he said desert storm will fail but it's my view to carry out responsibilities. >> reporter: kerry kept quiet and hillary clinton wasn't able to make it to the white house at all. she is still recovering from the concussion that is preventing from testifying about what she knew before after and during the deadly attack in benghazi. >> heather: peter doocy in washington, thanks. >> gregg: last of the newtown school shooting victims has been laid to rest. hour earns attended services for three children. eight days after the gunman killed 26 women and children. since then, more than $2.6 million worth of condolences have poured into the official memorial fund. >> heather: gun control debate heating up in the wake of the connecticut school shooting, national rifle
, this is a letter from then cia director leon panetta to john mccain saying the information was not from the detainee program. we first learned about the facilitator courier's mom de guerre from a detainee not in cia custody in 2000. it also is important to note that some detainees who were subjected to enhanced interrogation techniques attempted to provide false or misleading information. what was your sense on the information that was used? >> first of all, thank you for having me. i agree with leon panetta. that was accurate what i experienced and my colleagues experienced. the film leaves a strong impression were it not for the torture that proceeded the report-based techniques, were it not for the torture that the report-based techniques would not have worked. in fact, the torture delayed the effectiveness of the report-based technique that is the fbi has been using for many decades to successfully get hardened serial killers, for example, to confess to very heinous crimes. it works with detain knees as well. in fact, what i did when i went down there and the first interrogation pla
. >> i think progressives should do nothing. steve schmidt, john mccain's campaign manager said if mitt romney lost the election, there would be civil war within the republican party. this is what we are seeing now. what was so weird about the last episode is this caucus was in a room which was virtually like fantasyland. they were arguing over a proposal that made no sense and that was going nowhere. it had -- they are like tearing each other apart over it. this is a party that not only i love your line where you said they weren't able to achieve partisanship. this is a party that is no longer capable of governing. >> right. >> you can't let them be part of the process if they are going to behave like that. >> that's the point. if they can't pass a bill that exempted $999,999 of increases, what can they do? >> i think it saved obama from himself. the deal he was offering to bear, to raise taxes on people making $400,000 was a really bad one, right? now we get to come back to a new congress. you know, what he needs to find is get the house democratic caucus in line and pick up 20 republ
for the presidency from the very moment that he conceded to john mccain, so let's take that comment from tag with just a little bit of a grain of salt. >> fair enough. erin mcpike from rear clear politics and syndicated columnist bob franken, thank you both. >> thank you. >> still to come, are guns in school really the answer to keeping our children safe? we'll take to you one district where they are doing exactly that. >>> plus, what washington is going to do to keep us from falling off the fiscal cliff. we'll talk to lawmakers from both sides of the aisle coming up. this is msnbc, the place for politics. at first, jake's family thought they saved ziggy, but his connection with jake has been a lifesaver. for a love this strong, his family only feeds him iams. compared to other leading brands, it has 50% more animal protein... ...to help keep ziggy's body as strong as a love that reaches further than anyone's words. iams. keep love strong. for their annual football trip. that's double miles you can actually use. tragically, their buddy got sacked by blackouts. but it's our tradition! that's
suggestion. laura ingram called it an immaculate concussion. >> i think it's strange when john mccain had to give his medical history and high detail. i'm not interested in the details but the fact we haven't heard anything, we know as much about her concussion as we know about hugo chavez. this is an open society. she is secretary of state. disappeared and let us know about her condition. apartment from that, what is astonishing here is how little interest the press has in the continuing story and the continuing story is that everything you hear about benghazi affair is not true. the latest thing with four people will be responsible and accountable. we learned a week later as steve indicates who would have followed up on this, you know? people have to be held accountable. they're done, they are gone. they're not gone. the first assassination of ambassador in 30 years? anything that turned out to be so? she has to go before the congress. she is in charge. >> bob corker, the ranking member of the senate foreign affairs committee said she must testify. other republicans vie to hold up the n
is bipartisan. so people like lindsey graham and john mccain know him and respect him. so i think he will breeze through the confirmation. >> well, with that, i want to play a sound bite of both those two senators that you just mentioned, their reaction today to the choice. here it is. >> we have known john kerry for many years. we have confidence in john kerry's ability to carry out the job. >> i think senator kerry was a very solid choice by the president. he has a lot of experience. he has been on the foreign relations committee for a very long time. he knows most of the world leaders. >> the susan rice/benghazi witch-hunt, what is your reaction to that? >> well, keep in mind john kerry is barack obama's first choice. susan rice wasn't a choice. she got tied up into the politics of benghazi. but this is who the president likes, believes in. kerry gave obama that great nominating speech slot in 2004. but kerry has been able to be bipartisan in the true sense. he has been able to cut deals and work with senators -- senator murkowski is a friend of his from alaska, for example. this is going to
years ago and there was a picture of him standing next to doing bear hugs with george bush and john mccain saying who are the thorns and who are the roses. this guy was deep into the heart of gop territory. so his comments back then don't surprise me at all. he's not there today, and i think people need to understand what an independent-minded man he is to have left that kind of close relationship with mccain which people aren't remembering and also george w. bush and how close he was to the heart of, you know, gop bias about these issues at this time. that's why i think his independent track and walk today has been important and so misunderstood. >> thanks for reminding us the opposition to same-sex marriage and rights generally is under the platform as we speak. and hormel was representing so that point got through. jim frederick, thanks for joining us tonight. >>> up next, an attempted coup if you will. to derail a movement off the tracks. although i think they have a lot of influence. look at the cliff. the tea party will not act to keep the government going. this is "hardball," the pl
exceptional thing. john helps to lead the way along with john mccain. when he returned to the country where so many others fought so long it was a powerful message of progress and appeal. over these many years john has earned the respect and confidence of leaders around the world. hest not going to need a lot of on-the job training. he has earned the respect and trust of his colleagues of democrats and republicans i think it is fair to say that few individuals know as many presidents or prime ministers as john kerry. this makes him a perfect choice to guide america's dip employee macy in the years to come. on a personal level, john has been a great friend. i've called on his atlantas on several occasions -- talents on several occasions. each time he has been exemptly. i also have to say thanks because he invited the young senator to address the convention in boston. i was proud to serve with him on the foreign relations committee under the tutelidge of joe biden where we all became friends. of course, nothing brings two people closer together than weeks of debate prep. john, i'm looking forwa
prominent. the fact that john mccain now loves the guy when in the 1970s the two of them would have been on polar opposite sides of the vietnam war. but because they're senators, they're best buds. i bring that up because jack reid who is a senator from rhode island, a lot of people like him, and they know he wants to be defense secretary. he is not someone who has been mentioned this time. someone like michelle flornoye who is already at defense and others are more likely. >> great to see you. thanks so much. >>> national rifle association head wayne lap pierre is not backing down. maybe you watched this on i on meet the press" over the weekend when he had a chance to soften his organization's message, and he chose not to. >> if senator feinstein's ban is that going to pass? >> i think that is a phony piece of legislation, and i do not believe it will pass for this reason. it's all not on lies that have been found out. >> nra consultant asa hutchinson, a former republican congressman, is also standing from arguing that there's no need to re-evaluate the nation's gun laws. >> what i will
the way along with folks likes john mccain to restore our -- to vietnam. it sent a powerful message to congress. over the years john has earned the respect and confidence of leaders around the world. he is not going to need a lot of on-the-job training. he has arned the respect and trust of his colleagues, democrats and republicans. i think it's fair to say that few individuals know as many presidents, prime ministers or grasp our foreign policies as firmly as john kerry and this makes him a perfect choice guide american diplomacy in the years ahead. >> "washington journal" continues. host: standard asked is politics editor with the washington times and he is here to talk to us about the fiscal cliff. what's next. so let's get to it. on friday you had the lead story with the headline boehner's plan fails to win over g.o.p. the collapse is a serious blow to house speaker john boehner who hoped to gain leverage in his discussion with president obama and signals conservative republicans are inwilling to stomach any rise in tax rates even on those making more than $1 million which was m
not bode well for the trial balloon of chalk .eguck hagel we have seen john mccain say they are going to vote for him. chuck hagel has been questioned by a number of republicans. lindsey graham is considered a more moderate republican. there is a concern with hagel and the pro-israel lobby. they tried engagement with iran for the first year of the administration and went to the toughest sanctions in history. hagel has been an opponent of those sanctions. if he changed his view, i think that would improve his chances. look at where he is on the foreign policy debate. obama has taken positions that are more to the center than hagel. host: if senator kerry becomes secretary of state, what does he bring? guest: john kerry will have to navigate the new relationship with political islam. as countries open up more and become more democratic, part is affiliated with the muslim brotherhood will have so far done very well. we're just at the beginning of the kind of new face with political is long. the united states has had a relationship with the muslim brotherhood for 100 years. that is often
